A year ago, the Detroit Lions were welcomed back to relevance on the national stage by beating the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. The victory gave the Lions a 5-0 record and ultimately helped them end their playoff drought. This year, as the Lions get ready to take on the Bears in Chicago on Monday Night Football, the situation is quite a bit different. The Bears are 4-1 and the Lions are a disappointing 2-3. In order to avoid an even more disappointing 2-4 record and get back into the playoff picture, the Lions need to pick up their first win at Soldier Field since 2007.
